This incredible class focuses on the deep internal aspect of yoga. Yin yoga concentrates on healing the emotional, spiritual and physical body. The asanas (postures) are held between 2-5 mins allowing the connective tissue to stretch and the meridians to open. Many postures are supported by props to allow us to move deeper into the joints. This class has unbelievable results for those of us that live busy and physically demanding lives. If you regularly practise hot classes then Yin is equally important to help keep the body in balance.
The best of both worlds! Spend half the class building heat in the body through a vinyasa flow, then enjoy letting the body melt into deep cooling postures targeting the connective tissue. This wonderful combination focuses on both Yin (slow and cooling), and Yang (dynamic and warming) allowing your whole being to delve into a blissful state of balance.
Quite simply a slower version of our Hot Flow without infrared heat. Fantastic if you need an easier pace but still enjoy a flow style class. Postures and breath are still connected with fluid movements, but enjoy the sensation of connecting internally and allowing your body to move at a slower pace. Although the pace is slower we still include a few long holds in standing poses to keep you working out!
